About Elizabeth


Interest in authenticity, in specificity, in capturing individuals and their stories is at the heart of her work.
— Alex Deueben, Smash Pages

Elizabeth Beier’s creates timely, fearless and compassionate narrative art. Her comics tell true stories about identity and community in a way that is conversational and direct. Beier’s lightning-quick drawing style also enables her to “live scribe” at conferences, lectures, and political demonstrations.

Since winning Queer Press Grant in 2016, Beier joined the board of Prism Comics, a 501 non-profit organization that promotes awareness of LGBT creators, stories, characters, and readers in the comics industry. She has spoken, read at, and organized panels and events with other queer cartoonists in San Francisco, Berkeley, Los Angeles and New York. In response to recent political events she is now creating a growing set of open-source posters anyone can print to #resist Trump’s presidency and white supremacy.

Beier currently lives in San Jose, California where she draws on her late great-grandfather’s illustration table. Besides art, her creative outlets include storytelling. She won a Moth Story Slam with the theme "Witness" in March 2016 (see below), and performed at the Moth Grand Slam at the Castro Theater later that year.
